Before Spider-Man swings back onto the big screen, you can play as the web-slinging superhero in Marvel's Spider-Man PS4 game. And you can do it not only wearing Spidey's most recent white-spider-themed suit, but his classic red and blue outfit

Watch this: Spider-Man, Miles Morales and Mary Jane team up in new PS4 game trailer

PlayStation's new game trailer, which debuted Thursday at Comic-Con International, shows that Mayor Norman Osborn isn't willing to take any risks during his reelection bid in New York City. He hires mercenary Silver Sable and her security force Silver Sable International to restore order to the city, and that also means she has to stop someone the mayor blames for all the mayhem: Spider-Man.

In addition to seeing Spider-Man in action against Silver Sable, we see him in his classic superhero costume fighting the Scorpion, the Vulture, Electro, Rhino and Negative Man. 

But if you don't feel like being Spider-Man, the trailer makes it seem like playing as Spidey's pal and love interest Mary Jane is an option as a playable character.
